Mary Hoff joined the IonE communications team in 2010 after contributing to a broad range of science- and environment-related communication efforts as an independent writer and editor. She holds a B.S. in zoology from the University of Wisconsin and an M.A. in mass communication/science communication from the University of Minnesota.
Interests outside of work include backpacking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, running, reading Sherlock Holmes, baking bread and bantering. She and her husband have three grown children—all of whom mysteriously ended up math majors.
